About the Poem

I had been a subscriber of AOL for three days when I met the man of my dreams. We met in a chat room, and were immediately drawn to one another by a force that neither of us understood . . . and still don't. We have so many things in common it's almost spooky sometimes . . . we were even born on the same day.

I had heard people talk about "falling in love" on the Internet and I would laugh and shake my head in disbelief. How could you possibly fall in love with words? I now understand exactly how that can happen. We are 1152 miles apart and I don't think that we will ever be together in a physical sense. Others complicate this matter so completely, and I think that we both know in our heart of hearts that there is no future for us. I feel blessed that I have had the opportunity to have this very special man in my life . . . if only for a while. His voice is a ray of sunshine in my life. He has brought about feelings in me I did not know I had. This is only my second poem ever . . . do not judge it too harshly . . . just let it speak to you.

In A Perfect World

They met one night in a crowded room
He spoke, she responded
Polite banter at first
Neither realizing
That destiny had begun to loom

So many similarities
So many interests shared
Too many to be coincidence
Neither of them cared

With every question asked
A new layer was revealed
Two souls reunited
Their fate already sealed

A smile, a laugh
Words unspoken
They knew if not careful
Hearts would be broken

Their fire burned white- hot from the first
No time to waste, so much to say
An unquenchable thirst

"In a perfect world" he'd gently say
And she'd sigh
And the time would keep slipping away.

Just wanted to say I love your poem. I'm currently going through that sort of thing. and amazingly we were also born on the same day. We both live in NY but about 4 hours apart and both have said if we were closer. we'd be together there sure is a connection there. and I'd hate to ignore it because what if it was fate that brought us together??

although they say to the way to love anything is to realize it might be lost...i realized you cant fight destiny..yet you cant find true love where it does not exist and you cannot hide it where it truly does......

A beautiful poem, Rose. It truly spoke to my heart, filled and torn just like yours. And such a relief to read it, because I am not crazy after all.
